by Larkin Wilson 

Die sinkers of Civil War tokens are known to have used U.S. copper- 
nickel cents as planchets for some of their tokens. Indeed, Fuld lists forty 
such overstrikes in the Patriotic series. 1 More have been reported since the 
initial publication. Detwiler, in the first “Patriotic Patter” commentary, 
published his classic analysis of Patriotics by metal and by rarity. The 
statistical study indicates 170 of the catalog listings are of copper-nickel 
alloy. This group represents ten percent of the Patriotic series and, except 
for brass, is the most common off-metal. 2 

In a collection of uncirculated Patriotic CWTs, the author has noted 
striated planchet defects on a significant number of copper-nickel tokens. 
The incuse markings appear to have been made by filing. Examples of 
tokens with this phenomenon were shown to several numismatic 
authorities, who agree the planchet defects occurred prior to striking. 3 (See 
photos.) 

It is the purpose of this report to explore the question whether copper- 
nickel alloy CWT tokens were actually overstrikes on U.S. cents, the coins 
serving as planchets after a filing or grinding process. All data presented is 
in reference to the Patriotic series. No study was performed in regard to 
Civil War store cards. 

THE EVIDENCE 

The United States Mint prepared its own cent planchets from 1857 
through 1864. 4 However, the Mint reports reveal no suggestion that these 
planchets were distributed or sold to private die sinkers without having first 
been struck. 5 During the Civil War era, several companies were capable of 
preparing copper-nickel planchets. For example, in 1863 and 1864, the 
Peruvian government contracted for a number of copper-nickel one and two 
centavo pieces to be struck privately in this country. The specifications and 
composition were the same as current U.S. cents. The planchets were 
produced by Holmes, Booth-Hayden, a firm of Danbury, Connecticut. 4 , 6 To 
date, there is no evidence that this firm struck Civil War tokens although it 
is possible their planchets were used by other die sinkers. 7 Nothing has 
been found in data regarding planchets used by private die sinkers which 
would preclude the possibility that copper-nickel Civil War tokens were 
struck on altered U.S. cents. Likewise, no record or correspondence has 
been uncovered that would serve as a definite statement of proof to confirm 
this hypothesis. 

Accordingly, the author has assembled lines of evidence that have 
bearing on the question whether most, if not all, copper-nickel Civil War 


COPPER-NICKEL CWT PLANCHETS: 
Were They Altered U.S. Cents? 


Spring 1984 


Page 9 


tokens are actually U.S. cent overstrikes that were altered prior to striking. 

A study was first made of four Patriotic copper-nickel cent overstrikes 
which possess visible evidence that the U.S. Indian cent served as the 
understruck coin. All of these have similar specific gravities (mean: 9.03). 
Three of the four weights are similar to the specifications for U.S. Indian 
Head type cents, 1859-1864 (4.67 grams). One overstruck cent is light and 
weighs only 4.35 grams. On close observation, this specimen had evidence 
of file markings on the planchet, probably accounting for its lighter weight. 

Forty-four uncirculated copper-nickel alloy Patriotic CWT’s were then 
studied in detail. No evidence was found on microscopic examination to 
indicate any device markings that would suggest an intact U.S. cent served 
as the planchet. Each of this group was weighed and all are significantly 
lighter than the specifications for the U.S. cent. The mean weight is only 
4.0 grams with a range from 3.34 to 4.35 grams. The specific gravity of 
each is similar to the U.S. cent (mean: 8.97). 

A comparative color study of several uncirculated U.S. copper-nickel 
Indian-Head cents, definite copper-nickel overstrikes, and the copper- 
nickel alloy CWTs arranged together showed significant similarity of color 
among all pieces. 

Therefore, the weight, color, and specific gravity of the copper-nickel 
alloy tokens are consistent with their origin having been the U.S. copper 
nickel cent. 

On inspection by magnification of the forty-four copper-nickel allGy 
tokens, it is noted that eleven (25%) possess evidence of striated planchet 
markings, presumably made by a filing or grinding process. Additionally, 
100 other uncirculated Patriotic off-metal Civil War tokens were selected at 
random from a private collection for examination. The metals consisted of 
nickel, German silver, white metal, brass, and silver. No evidence on any 
of these other off-metal tokens suggests the obverse or reverse of the 
planchet had been filed. Thus, while a fourth of the copper-nickel tokens 
have evidence of planchet filing, no such marks are found on the faces of 
the other off-metal specimens. 

This study of copper-nickel tokens, as well as definite overstruck one- 
cent specimens, revealed nothing to preclude the hypothesis that the 
copper-nickel alloy pieces were actually struck over U.S. cents, following a 
filing or grinding process. Indeed, the evidence supports the assumption 
that most, if not all, of these tokens may well have altered U.S. cents as 
their planchets. 

Next, an experiment was performed to determine the amount of metal 
needing to be removed from the obverse and reverse of a U.S. cent in order 
to obliterate the devices. An uncirculated Lincoln cent was weighed before 
and after a grinding process with an emery wheel. The coin was altered to 
the extent that the device on both the obverse and reverse was obliterated. 
The weight prior to alteration was 3.03 grams and afterwards 2.65 grams, 
a loss of 0.38 grams. Removal of 12.54 percent of the total metal from the 
coin was required to obliterate the devices. The average weight of the 
definite Civil War token overstrikes is 4.63 grams, and that of the copper- 


Page 10 


Copperhead Courier 


nickel alloy group without visible evidence of an understruck coin device is 
only 4.0 grams. This difference of 13.6 percent indicates that a sufficient 
amount of metal could have been removed from the U.S. Indian cent prior 
to striking to obliterate visible evidence of the cent devices. 

Fuld’s listing of Patriotic CWT’s was reviewed to determine if the 
diameter of any copper-nickel token was different from the U.S. cent. 
Nowhere in the listing or plates is there any indication that a Patriotic 
copper-nickel token is larger than the standard size U.S. cent. 1 

Additionally, in a tabulation of the copper-nickel and one-cent over- 
strike Patriotic CWT’s listed in Fuld, only eighteen of the listings were found 
to be one-cent overstrike tokens without also being listed in copper-nickel 
off-metal alloy. However, twenty-five (20.3%) of the 123 tokens listed in 
copper-nickel alloy also occur as a one-cent overstrike. A study of Det- 
wiler’s chart of Patriotic CWT’s by metal and by rarity indicates copper- 
nickel to be the most common off-metal with the exception of brass. 2 
(Brass tokens perhaps should not be considered a definite off-metal 
because the composition is so similar to copper ones and many were struck 
in large number for circulation.) It is also noted that copper-nickel off- 
metal occurs in the lower rarity numbers (4,5, and 6). These data would 
suggest that copper-nickel tokens were struck more often and perhaps their 
planchets more available than other off-metals. This would be expected if, 
indeed, the planchets could have been taken from general circulation. 

Finally, the economics of using U.S. cents for planchets should be 
considered. Since copper and brass planchets would be cheaper, use of the 
U.S. cent would produce a more expensive product. No copper-nickel 
Patriotic CWT’s are listed in rarities 1 through 3. The higher rarity off- 
metal tokens were not struck for circulation purposes, and it is assumed 
they were sold at a premium to collectors. Therefore, there would not 
necessarily be an economic loss to the die sinker for using the U.S. one- 
cent pieces as planchets. 

SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS 

It is postulated that most, if not all, of the Patriotic copper-nickel alloy 
CWT’s were struck on U.S. cents, perhaps after a grinding or filing process. 
Historical data concerning copper-nickel planchets during the Civil War 
era is presented. A detailed study of a group of off-metal Patriotic CWT’s is 
outlined. The results in regard to color, planchet defects, comparative 
weights, and specific gravity are supportive evidence for this hypothesis. 
Additionally, an experiment on an uncirculated U.S. cent was performed 
whereby the devices on the obverse and reverse were obliterated by 
mechanical grinding. The result indicates the difference in weight between 
overstruck U.S. cents and the lighter copper-nickel alloy tokens which 
show no visible signs of understrike devices could be due to a sufficient 
amount of metal having been removed. An analysis of data previously 
published by Fuld and Detwiler also lends support to this theory. No 
evidence was uncovered that would preclude the conclusion that most, if

Initial Follow Up To “Riddles To Be 
Solved Or How Did These Towns 

Disappear?” 

Sterling A. Rachootin and many others 

I learned many things writing the above article. Rand McNally 
isn’t all it is cracked up to be. Some towns appeared on the map, but 
not in the index. That writing too much like talking too much can 
create some problems. After writing my article I noted that David 
Gladfelter wrote an article that appeared in our original Journal of 
the Civil War Token Society (predeCCeSSOr to the Copperhead Courier ) 
entitled “The Old and the New” V6N3P78. In this article he pin- 
points many of the towns I asked questions about. I tried to have my 
article dropped, but I presume it was too late, so I apologized to 
David Gladfelter and to all you members of the society. You have 
learned that I am a bit careless, having listed two towns that are 
still going strong: Hales Corner, Wisconsin and Ironton, Missouri, 
and leaving out Barton, Wisconsin, Sorry Missourians and 
Wisconsinites. My face is red. I also learned that we have many 
deeply interested readers out there who have much to contribute. I 
have received some 18 letters thus far and some of the letters 
received took longer to write than did my own article. We really 
have a great group that makes up our society. Thank you all for 
your very informative letters. I am in the process of compiling and 
organizing the material sent to me. I never dreamed I would be 
confronted with such a great task. 

Both Bill Williges and Bruce Smith wrote of making use of zip 
codes and Bill mentioned that area code telephone numbers can be 
of use. For example, zip codes in Indiana, Corunna is 46730; 
Greenboro 47344; Lynn 47355, etc. There will be some in- 
consistencies when I collate what I have received but you, the 
reader will have some starting points if you care to verify and come 
to grips with this matter. As letters are still streaming in let me 
share what I have thus far on just the state of Illinois. 

While writing this letter I just received a fantastic article by 
Wayne Homren on Allegheny City, PA. This is a complete article of 
and by itself. 

Rich Hartzog doesn’t like my Rand McNally atlas and he states 
that he has been to Chemung and Durand. He mentions that Lodi 
was changed to Maple Park in 1880 to avoid confusion with towns 
bearing the same name (Lodi) in nearby states. 

Mitch Cole writes that he read that there were three (3) Lodi’s 


Page 14 


Copperhead Courier 


in Illinois and no one is sure where they were, if they still exist, and 
what their present names are. There is a Loda about 100 miles south 
of Chicago. Mitch is having a retired railroad freight-rate man do 
some checking into the list of towns I had mentioned in the article. 

David Gladfelter writes the following:

Minutes of the CWTS General Meeting, held at 
the 1983 A.N.A. Convention in San Diego, 
California, August 18, 1983 

The meeting was called to order by President Walter Korzick at 
9:00 a. m. There were 24 CWTS members in attendance. 

Jack Detwiler presented the service awards, which were as 
follows: The recipient of the 1982 Service Award was Dale Cade. 
Dale has given freely of his time for many years by handling the 
CWTS auctions in each Copperhead Courier , processing the dues 
renewals at the end of each year, keeping our mailing list up to date, 
and many other odd jobs that pop up during the year. A Special 
Service award was presented to Dr. Herman Aqua. Dr. Aqua has 
served 12 years as a CWTS officer, has generated six Journal ar- 
ticles, and provides a verification service for our members. Melvin 
Fuld received a Past Service Award for serving as the CWTS 
President for two years, authored 15 articles for the Courier, and co- 
authored both the patriotic and store card catalogs. A second Past 
Service Award was presented to Bob Hailey who served as an of- 


Spring 1984 


Page 15 


ficer for four years, contributed 21 articles to the Journal , and 
initiated the “Auction Notes” column. Last but not least, a Thank 
You Plaque was presented to Frank Crowther for taking over the 
job of dues renewal from 1978-1980. The society experienced a 
period of rapid growth during this time, and Frank helped us over a 
rough spot with the transition of the society secretaries. Jack also 
thanked the other members of the Award Committee, Cindy 
Grellman and Ken Trobaugh. 

Roy VanOrmer then presented the following Literary Awards: 
First place went to Gary L. Lyon for his article “Chicago’s Mer- 
chants and Their Storecards.” Second place winner was Werner G. 
Mayer for his article “Joneswood and Hotel.” Sterling Rachootin 
took third place honors with his “A Symbol for America — The Bald 
Eagle.” Honorable mention was given to Gary Pipher for the fine 
job he’s done with “Auction Notes.” The Literary Award Com- 
mittee was composed of Roy VanOrmer, David Gladfelter, and 
Dick Grinolds. 

Next on the agenda, Walt Korzick presented David E. 
Schenkman with the Past President’s Award, and thanked him for 
the super job he did during his two years as CWTS President. Walt 
also commended all the CWTS officers for their service to the 
Society during the year. 

Dale Cade gave the membership report, which was as follows : 
773 Regular members 58 Life members 5 Junior members 

836 Total members 

Jack Detwiler reported that the revised edition of Patriotic Civil 
War Tokens is ready for printing and binding. This project, which 
was started in 1975, should be available for Christmas 1983. The 
CWTS thanks the following members who served as editors of the 
patriotic catalog: Dale Cade, Jack Detwiler, David Gladfelter, 
Larry Grinstead, Jon Harris, Stephen McMahon, Helen Moore, 
Robert O’Brien, Daniel Phillips, Fred Reed III, and Richard Rossa. 

Steve Tanenbaum gave the report on the store card book 
revision project. Although this project is in its infancy, some of the 
state coordinators have been named, and are already starting work. 
Steve does need volunteers to do research work in Ohio. 

President Walt Korzick introduced the members of the Board of 
Governors who were in attendance: Joe Levine, Roy VanOrmer, 
Steve Tanenbaum, Rich Rossa, Dave Schenkman, and Sterling 
Rachootin. Following the introductions, Sterling gave an excellent 
audio visual program, “How Civil War Tokens Met the Challenge of 
Monetary Values.” The meeting adjourned following Sterling’s 
presentation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Cindy Grellman, Secretary

Hip Pocket Approach To 
Patriotic CWT Pricing 

by Dale Cade 

The question has been asked innumerable times, and with many 
variations, “What should I pay for a token?” There are probably as 
many answers to that question as there are tokens. In my research- 
ing of prices paid for patriotic CWT for the pricing guide section of 
the new patriotic book, several truisms became glaringly apparent: 

1. Token prices are unpredictable. 

2. Token prices follow no definable logic. 

3. Data scatter is fantastic. 

Stepping in where angels fear to tread, I gathered reams of data 
on patriotic CWT prices, using rarity and grade as discriminators. 
In assembling the raw data, care was taken to select data sources 
from as many widely separated (geographically) areas as possible 
so as to be representative of the country as a whole. The data was 
also limited to being no more ancient than two years, in an attempt 
to eliminate major market fluctuations as a consideration. 

Next came the statistical averaging process in which each 
population of accumulated data for a given rarity and condition was 
reduced to a single value representative of the entire population. 
For large populations of data, this technique is excellent, as out-of- 
bounds values have little effect on the average. When the data 
population is small, as is the case with higher rarity tokens, the 
accuracy of this method becomes very questionable. 

The plotting of the averaged data by cost and grade, as a family 
of rarity curves, graphically proved truism #3! To resolve this 
problem, curve fairing techniques were employed which brought 
some measure of order out of the chaos. Thus, the dollar values 
shown in the new patriotic book were arrived at by reading the 
values from these curves. This is far too lengthy a process for 
everyday use, but from this, a hip pocket guide has evolved which 
will enable the reader to get into the ball park for the average 
patriotic CWT. The token price becomes the product of a multiplier 
times the rarity of the piece for a given condition and rarity, as 
shown in the table.

Example: A rarity 1 or 2 piece in Fine condition should cost 

(IV 2 -2) X2 = $3-$4. 

A few words of caution when using this table. The nature of the 
compilation process has added some valuation for intangibles, as 
represented by the prices paid for the tokens. It is not practical to 
attempt to remove this valuation. Also, the relative desirability of 
the piece must be taken into account. For example, the Lincoln 
pieces are always sought after, and command prices at or above the 
upper end of the price range. On the other hand, the “DIX” and flag 
pieces are at or below the lower end of the price range, as they are 
not as actively sought after. And finally, CWT prices DO vary with 
the geographic location where sold. In some instances, the fluc- 
tuations may be minimal, but nevertheless, they are real, and must 
be taken into consideration. 

Use of the table will not guarantee a winner every time, but 
when used in conjunction with other information available on a 
given patriotic CWT, your success rate can be increased. 

An Old Chinese Proverb.... 

There’s an old Chinese proverb that says: “Do not announce 
happening until you’re sure that that happening is happening ! ” 

We should have learned our lesson, I think, with the Fuld- 
Detwiler book that was originally promised some five years ago! 
The topic at hand here is the “hard” life membership cards for the 
Civil War Token Society. Our intentions were to have the cards 
produced, engraved and delivered in January but that was not to be. 

No promises — we’ll get the cards out as soon as possible !

Fuld 362 - Who Is JGW? 


by Jack R. Detwiler 
All Rights Reserved 


It would be nice to have a coin-operated time machine that 
answers the question, will the real JGW please stand up, with the 
insertion of patriotic Civil War token, 93/362? Would the time 
machine respond with John G. Wells, James Wilson, or John G. 
Wellstood? 




OBV - Fuld 93 


REV - Fuld 362 


John G. Wells was a book seller at 165 William Street, New York 
City, according to the 1863 city directory. He also sold signed Civil 
War patriotic envelopes (see Figure 1) in his store that was located 
in the same block with the die sinking firms of Charles D. Horter at 
178 William Street and Emil Sigel* at 177 William Street. 

There are five patriotic varieties with the Fuld 362 reverse as 
listed below. Horter created dies 93 and 88, and Sigel made Fuld 64.

The original die combination was 93/362 based on its common rarity 
of R2, and the other four varieties are probably mulings that may 
have been created after the Civil War at the special request of such 
avid CWT collectors as J.N.T. Levick or Edward Groh to name a 
few. 

♦Sigel also had a working arrangement with Louis Roloff, 1 New 
Chambers, NYC.

If John G. Wells is JGW, then the patriotic varieties listed above 
would be converted to store-card listings under New York City in 
Fulds’ U.S. Civil War Store Cards. 

Then again JGW may be James Wilson, Jeweler, 130 E. 
Broadway, NYC, according to the 1862 city directory. Jewelers are 
often die sinkers, and Wilson may have contributed to the 
production of patriotics that came from the Horter-Sigel combine. If 
this is a correct assumption, then the Fuld 362 is a signed reverse 
die, and the Civil War tokens with the Fuld 362 reverse remain in the 
patriotic series. 

The most probable identity of JGW is John G. Wellstood, 
engraver, corner of Wall and William Streets, NYC, according to 
the 1863 city directory. This places Wellstood, Horter, Sigel, and 
Wells in the same neighborhood. Once again the Fuld 362 would be a 
signed die, and the five tokens would be patriotics. 

In summary, my opinion is that JGW is John G. Wellstood since 
(1) his engraving business is so close to the die sinking firms of 
Horter and Sigel, (2) other patriotic dies are signed below the “Not 
One Cent” such as Fuld 361 (H for Horter), 376 (E. S. for Emil 
Sigel), 377-78 (L. Roloff) making this a patriotic rather than a store 
card (eliminating John G. Wells), and (3) we don’t know that James 
Wilson’s middle initial was G nor that he was a Die Sinker as well as 
a Jeweler.

Letters To The Editor : 


Dear Editor, 

I hope one of the members of the CWTS can answer my question 
about N.Y. 95B and 95E. Both of these tokens read Brooklyn E.D. 

95E has a dot after the D and 95B doesn’t, but aside that they are 
the same. 

What does E.D. stand for? 

Tokenly yours, 

Michael M. Malkin 

Dear Mr. Mumford: 

I would just like to express my appreciation to all the people 
involved in producing the fourth revised edition of Fulds 'Patriotic 
Civil War Tokens. As a fairly new collector of patriotics, it is both 
fascinating for me to read all the interesting bits of information 
contained in the book as well as fun to use the die-a-grams to check 
on the identification of the tokens I already own (some of them were 
misidentified by the previous owner or dealer). Certainly this book 
will do much to advance the hobby of collecting patriotics. Begin- 
ning collectors definitely should not be without this valuable book. 
Thank you all. 

Sincerely, 

Barbara H. Beach 
CWTS #1403 

Dear Mr. Mumford: 

RE: the listing of “ghost” towns published in the Fall issue of 
The Journal. About half of the towns are listed in the current National 
Zip Code Directory. 

I understand what Mr. Rachootin’s intent was in submitting the 
list, but he could have been more thorough in his research before 
compiling it. 

In researching place names, I found that Ballingers Postal and 
Shippers Guides are the most comprehensive. They were published 
annually and list all post offices, RR stations, coal mines, military 
installations and obscure places not found in an atlas. Other ex- 
cellent references are the listing sof municipalities published by 
state government agencies. They usually can be obtained without 
charge, or for a nominal sum. 

Sincerely, 

A1 Zaika 

P.S. Enclosed is a list of a few of the “ghost” towns that I have been 
able to locate. You can publish them in The Journal, or forward them

to Mr. Rachootin. 

Editor’s note: The list has been forwarded to Sterling Rachootin.... 
Will Mumford, 

In response to the General Store section of Vol. 17 of the Cop- 
perhead Courier , the following true story may be of interest. 

About ten years ago, when I barely knew what a store card was, 
we were building an outside porch addition to our farm home 
located just outside of Jackson, Michigan (Parma, Michigan). 

While digging the foundation, with the Mrs. watching with in- 
terest, she suddenly said, “Look what you just uncovered! ” 

She picked up a soil-encrusted coin which I presumed was, at 
best, an old Indian Head cent, but upon closer examination I could 
read the words “Jackson Hall Groceries, Jackson, Mich. ! ” 

I placed the coin in a 2”x2” holder and placed it in the pocket of 
my shirt to show my friends at the office the next day. At noon the 
next day while walking a few blocks to the bank, I withdrew the bills 
from my shirt pocket for a short review. After visiting the bank 
where I again withdrew the bills from my pocket, I searched for my 
treasure to show it to a friend. But it was missing! I frantically 
retraced my steps down the main street of Jackson inquiring of the 
shopkeepers along the way if any “found” items had been turned in. 

Since the Mrs. was an avid collector of anything historic per- 
taining to our homesite, I was sure she would at least kill me when 
she found out I had lost the new find! Because of the item involved, 
it was impossible to quickly buy a replacement and cover up my 
boner. 

The next morning, a clerk at the bank phoned saying she had 
seen what appeared to be a 35mm photo transparency laying on the 
floor. Since the bank had informed all its help that I was missing a 
lost coin, she graciously called me and returned it! 

(Name held upon request) 

Editor’s comment: Thanks for sharing your interesting story. 

Dear Mr. Cunningham, 

Your suggestion in the Winter Issue of the Courier makes a lot 
of sense. Six issues a year would be more in keeping with the pace of 
the hobby and allow for the dissemination of more timely in- 
formation. I would suggest keeping the size at forty pages to allow 
for more member participation which would come as a result of the 
decreased lead times for publication of things like ads. 

Speaking of ads, I would like to place the following in the Summer 
Issue: 

WILL TRADE MY PATRIOTICS and N Y. storecards for New 
Jersey storecards R4-R8. Send S.A.S.E. for list to: F.C. Ratti, P.O.

“Here’s my entry to the 
CWTS logo contest. I like this 
design because it was very 
popular then as well as now, can 
be readily obtained on a token 
by all members in nice grade, 
and clearly depicts the 
patriotism and happenings of 
the Civil War. I also considered 
164 for the same reason but felt 
that it didn’t suggest the Civil

War as strongly as 351 to the 
casual observer. I offered 164 as 
a second choice. I would like to 
see an enamelled button 
suitable for lapel or tie tac and a 
2-3” sewn patch.”

Design #7. 

‘‘In designing this logo, my 
thoughts were as follows: I 
consider the flag theme to be 
most emblematic of a 
‘‘common cause” and con- 
sistent with our historic period 
of interest. I picture the ‘T’ 
(token) as an umbrella of sorts 
(CWTS) under which the Civil 
War and our present day society 
are brought together via these 
historic discs. The thirteen 
scattered stars are reminiscent 
of the original union, and the 
imposing cannon amongst them 
(could be taken from Patriotic 
dies 168 or 169) is symbollic of 
the war which tore the states 
asunder. 

As to the colors, I suggest 


Page 24 


Copperhead Courier 


blue letters against a gray 
background on lower left of flag. 
The upper right half might 
portray red stars on a white 
background or blue stars 
against a red background (as 
pictured). The red color brings 
to mind the bloodshed. The 
cannon might simply be black 
(bleak and dark-forboding in 
color and array). 



The Civil War Token Society 
provides fellowship among 
collectors of Civil War Tokens 
and promotes research in the 


field of Civil War Tokens. The 
hands clasped in friendship (F- 
418, 419) symbolize the 

fellowship of the society and the 
telescope (MD-560A) is sym- 
bolic of the continued research 
conducted by members of the 
society. The oak leaves and the 
laurel leaves as well as the stars 
are common items found on 
many Civil War Tokens. The 
small chain around the symbols 
represents the society bound in 
union to promote fellowship and 
research. The date 1967 is the 
year in which the CWTS was 
founded.

New Token Catalog Is Selling Well 


The Civil War Token Society has sold over 1100 copies of the newly 
released catalog. Patriotic Civil War Tokens (4th Edition), in the first six 
weeks of its sales campaign. The brisk sales of the patriotic book are quite 
different from those of the store card catalog released in 1972 by the same 
organization. Three years were required to sell 1000 books of U.S. Civil 
War Store Cards. 

Cindy Grellman, CWTS Secretary, and Paul Cunningham, 
Distribution Manager for the new token book, report that heavy dealer 
participation is the main reason for the successful sales campaign. The 
dealers who recognized the resale potential of the patriotic catalog have 
accounted for 75% of the 1104 books sold. The retail price is also a factor 
according to Grellman and Cunningham. The cost to CWTS members is 
$17.50 and to non-members, $25.00. In comparison, many case-bound 
standard references in the token and medal fields are selling in the 35-60 
dollar range. 

The fourth edition of Patriotic Civil War Tokens is a complete 
revision and expansion of Fulds’ 75-page third edition published in 1965. 
The latest edition has two parts, the catalog and “die-a-grams.” The 261-

page catalog was developed by a ten-member team recruited by Jack 
Detwiler from within the Civil War Token Society. The 98 pages of “die-a- 
grams” were generated by Detwiler. 

The catalog has 18 sections whose titles are Introduction, Pricing and 
Grading Guide, Die Photos, Fuld and Moore-Reverse Listings, Politicals, 
Medalets, Half Cards, Special Classifications, Ascriptions, Actual and 
Possible Store Cards, Questionable Patriotics, Fakes and Replicas, Rarest 
Patriotic Dies, Deleted Patriotic Varieties, Legends, Die Conversion 
Tables, Glossary of Terms, and Abbreviations. 

“Die-a-grams” are photographic charts to aid the collector in dif- 
ferentiating among similar patriotic dies. The Fuld patriotic dies are 
grouped in families such as Turban Heads, Indian Heads, The Flag of Our 
Union, Monitor, Army & Navy, Not One Cent, and Dix with one family for 
each die-a-gram. 

The associate editors who assisted Detwiler in the preparation of the 
patriotic CWT book were Dale H. Cade, David D. Gladfelter, Larry J. 
Grinstead, Jon Harris, B. Stephen McMahon, Helen E. Moore, Dr. Robert 
W. O’Brien, Daniel N. Phillips, Fred L. Reed III, and Richard Rossa. 

Detwiler has been receiving letters of appreciation from both CWTS 
members and non-members. CWTS member Simon J. Muntean of New 
Jersey wrote, “I want to thank you for the new Patriotic Civil War Tokens 
book that you recently revised. Before buying your book I had the 1960 and 
1965 editions, and I couldn’t make heads or tails from them. I think you did 
a wonderful job.” 

Another CWTS member. Dr. Larkin Wilson of Arkansas, stated, ‘The 
new edition of the Patriotic CWT catalogue is excellent, and I have spent 
many hours of interesting reading thanks to you.” Wilson goes on to list 
several of his pieces that are unlisted and offers them as candidates for 
additions to the Fuld patriotic listings. 

Non-member Richard V. Punchard of Minnesota commented, “I 
received a copy of the newly issued Patriotic Civil War Tokens in today’s 
mail and wanted to express my appreciation for the excellent work in the 
revision.” Punchard offered to supply his Wealth of the South medalet, 
Fuld 509B/510B, for photographing purposes so that a half-tone of die 
509B may be added to Section 3, “Die Photos,” and to Part 11, “Die-a- 
grams.” Previous attempts to locate the die 509B for photographing were 
unsuccessful prior to publication of the book. Other photos are needed. 

The Civil War Token Society requests that any reader who can provide 
either of the following patriotic CWTs for photographing please contact 
Cindy Grellman, CWTS Secretary, 670 Korina St., Vandenberg AFB, CA

1860 Mining Tokens - 

Other Possibilities 


Recently Jack Detwiler published a theory on the usage of the 
Escherich-struck copper mine and silver mine patriotic tokens. 
(See COPPERHEAD COURIER V16, Nl and COIN WORLD 2/10/82). In 
brief, he believes these tokens were store cards for a copper mine 
(with silver as a byproduct). The most likely location for this mine 
would be Michigan’s copper country — Houghton, Keweenaw, and 
Ontonagon counties. At present, there is no historic link to prove his 
theory. Jack suggests a connection could be established if one were 
to find a “copper mine token” with a metal detector in a copper 
country ghost town. 

Although Mr. Detwiler ’s theory is intriguing (and may be 
correct), other possibilities exist — namely that these tokens are 
Civil War era game counters or just patriotics. Keeping an open 
mind, I researched the use of the pertinent Escherich dies with the 
help of the Moore and Renner reverse die listings. My findings are 
summarized below :

521 


DESCRIPTION 
Indian Head

1213(NY630AG-8a-8e) 

520/521,287/520 

104/521,520/521 


The Escherich die 287(1213) must have been sold because of the 
mulings (collector strikes) with Mossin & Marr’s AMERICA die 
(417) and a New York diesinker’s (Horter?) GOLD WEIGHT NEW 
YORK 2 DWT (1199). To the best of my knowledge, the other 
Escherich dies were not muled with “foreign” dies. Did the artistic 
merit of the silver mine die make it salable? 

Escherich dies 104,263,287, and 520 are imitations of designs of 
U.S. minor coinage. Because these tokens resemble U.S. coins, they 
have been historically been classified as game counters (Kurth and 
Fuld/Ralau). Under this theory, the one cent counters are 104/521, 
104/263, and 520/521. The ten cent counter is 287/520. The muling 
1199/1213 also suggests a game counter. The argument that these 
tokens were patriotics is plausible except for their scarcity. Most 
patriotics were struck in great quantity to make a nice profit for the 
diesinker. 

The theories about the Copper Mine token depend whether you 
take the legend literally or assume it is a reference to a copper

counter. If any reader has found one of these tokens in copper 
country or has any other theory, please write me.

THIS ’N THAT 

1. Several issues ago, the Auction Manager requested suggestions for 

improving the auctions. My thanks to you suggesters. 

a. Jeff Rock suggested 1) including a pre-addressed envelope with the 
Courier for the return of the bid sheet, and 2) including photos of 
several of the better pieces. Pre-addressed (printed) envelopes 
would add approx. $35 to the cost of preparing and mailing the 
Courier and would be used by only about 10% of the membership. 
In the opinion of the Auction Manager, this money would be better 
spent to benefit all CWTS members. 

Regarding the photos, the idea is great, but the auction size (page 
count) is limited, and photos would be added at the expense of lot 
quantity. Then there is the cost of getting the photos and printing 
them. We’ll keep this on the back burner, and review it again at a 
later date. 

b. Rocco DiGiacomo suggested reducing the cosmetic descriptions of 
the lots. A very tempting idea. However, several members have 
written to say that they find the cosmetic descriptions extremely 
useful. Common comments received include “the tokens were just 
as described” and “why don’t other auctions include cosmetic 
descriptions?”. While the experienced collector recognizes that 
most tokens over 100 years old will contain some blemishes and 
minor damage, many newer CWT collectors will not. Guess the 
more detailed cosmetic descriptions need to stay around a while 
longer. 

c. Sterling Rachootin suggested adding die descriptions for those that 
do not have the patriotic or store car books. A nice idea, but im- 
practical for the auctions. If implemented, this would increase the 
length of the auction by 2 or 3 times (or reduce the number of lots by 
a like number). Let the die descriptions remain in the store card and 
patriotic books. 

2. CWTS has four new Life Members - John C. Foster, LM62, Stan 
Gizowski, LM63, Michael E. Hallihau, LM64, and John L. Good, 
LM65, bring the total Life Members to 61. 

3. The 1984 membership list can be obtained from the Society Secretary 
for a request and a SASE (business size, with 54$ postage). A current 
roster is available from the Secretary at any time, as the CWTS files 
are computerized.

My Favorite C.W.T. 

Die #174/272, R-l, statue of Washington on horseback in New 
York City, 14th Street and Union Square. It is a very easy place to 
get to. Take the “LL” subway line to 14th Street. It stops under the 
statue! 

It’s all green now after being in N.Y.C. for over 120 years for all 
to see, and a reminder of our past. by Stan Gizowski

REPORT ON CWTS AUCTION #51 

This auction set new records for member participation as 109 
bidders submitted 1628 bids for the 362 lots offered. The previous 
high was 104 bidders. Two out of every three bidders successfully 
bid in at least one lot. Gross sales were just over the $3400 mark, and 
that should mean approximately a $300 increase for the CWTS 
treasury. 

Individual honors were no contest as lot 356, patriotic 258/446, 
garnered 29 bids for top spot. Lot 344, patriotic 239/422, took second 
honors with 23 bids, and lot 200, Wis 995A-la, was close behind with 
22 bids. The grab bag lots were very popular, and for you disap- 
pointed bidders who were unsuccessful, we’ll try the grab bag lots 
again in another auction.

ALLEGHENY CITY: 


Gone But Not Forgotten 

by Wayne K. Homren 

(All Rights Reserved By The Author) 

Allegheny City was located just across the Allegheny Riverfrom 
downtown Pittsburgh, PA. It is now known simply as “the North 
Side” (See figure 1). Allegheny was long ago absorbed by the 
growing City of Pittsburgh, but its memory lives on. The Civil War 
Tokens of six merchants are part of the numismatic legacy of 
Allegheny City. This article is a short history of their town. 

EARLY HISTORY 

The U.S. Census of 1810 recorded approximately 450 residents of 
Allegheny Town. They were mostly Presbyterian settlers who 
farmed and manufactured such items as glass and rope. An 1825 
visitor described “...a little village called Allegheny Town, laid out 



Figure 1 - Pre-annexation map 


Summer 1984 Page 9 


upon a grand scale, but on account of the proximity of Pittsburgh, it 
will with difficulty attain any importance.” 1 

The population had grown to just 2,800 by 1830. Local industry 
now included paper and cotton mills. The growing economy at- 
tracted an influx of immigrants, mostly German and some Irish. By 
1840 the town held 10,000 people, and was renamed Allegheny City. 

There were many public improvements in the years leading up 
to the Civil War. Additional streets were paved, and old wooden 
bridges were replaced with new suspension structures. Just after 
the U.S. victory in the Mexican-American War, a new set of streets 
was laid out. They bore names commemorating famous people and 
places of the war, such as Palo Alto, Resaca, Monterey, and Buena 
Vista. Many fashionable homes were built there. 

CIVIL WAR 

Abraham Lincoln stopped in Allegheny City on the way to his 
inauguration in 1861. The City continued to grow as its mills turned 
out valuable materials for the war effort. Civic improvements 
continued even as the war raged in the South. In 1863 the City 
acquired its first steam fire engine, and dedicated a new Market 
House, called the finest in the nation (See figure 2). 

In 1864 a Sanitary Fair was held to raise money for the “sub- 
sistence and hospitalization of Union Soldiers and their depen- 
dents.” The organizers requested donations of things which could be 
“eaten, worn, sold, or were curious to look at.” 2 A new City Hall 
building was nearly complete, and it was decided to tear down the 
old Town House ahead of schedule to make room for the Fair. City 
Council declared that a photograph of the historic structure be 
taken and 200 copies be given to the Fair, presumably to be sold as 
souvenirs. 

The Sanitary Fair opened on June 1st, 1864. Buildings included 
Floral Hall, Exhibition Hall, Mechanics Hall, Ladies Bazaar, and 
the Refectory. The Fair raised $363,000 for the soldiers. 

FAMOUS RESIDENTS 

One aspiring immigrant to Allegheny City was a 13-year-old boy 
named Andrew Carnegie. He arrived with his parents and elder 
brother in 1848, fleeing intolerable economic conditions in their 
home of Dunfermline, Scotland. Young Carnegie took a job as a 
“bobbin boy” in a local textile mill, at $1. 20/week. In classic rags- 
to-riches fashion, he rose through a series of jobs and business 
dealings to build Carnegie Steel (which later became U.S. Steel). In 
1900 he sold his interest in the company, and retired the richest man 
on earth. Carnegie’s philanthropy built public structures around the 




Page 10 Copperhead Courier 


world. The Carnegie Free Library of Allegheny opened in 1890. 

Composer Steven Collins Foster lived 10 years in Allegheny 
City. (His father was mayor in 1842 and 43.) Many of his most 
famous songs were composed during those years, including: 
Jeannie With the Light Brown Hair, My Old Kentucky Home, 
Camptown Races, Old Folks at Home, and Oh, Susannah. 

Internationally famous impressionist painter Mary Cassatt 
lived in Allegheny City for a time. Her father was mayor in 1846. 
From 1902 to 1912 noted author and playwright Mary Roberts 
Rinehart made Allegheny City her home. Her most famous novel, 
“The Circular Staircase,” was published in 1908. In 1915 she began 
covering the war in Europe for the Saturday Evening Post. Authors 
Willa Cather and Gertrude Stein also lived for a time in Allegheny 
City. 

Sports fans should know another famous “resident” of 
Allegheny City, the Pittsburgh Pirates Base Ball Club, who built 
Exposition Park in 1882. 

ANNEXATION 

Pittsburgh politicians long yearned to control Allegheny City. 
Allegheny City, of course, clung tightly to her independence, and 
would have no part of her crowded neighbor across the river. As 
early as 1867 Pittsburgh moved to incorporate outlying districts. An 
October election polled residents of several areas north of the 
Allegheny river (including Allegheny City). The majority voted 
against joining Pittsburgh. There were two more failed attempts in 
the 1890’s. Bills introduced by Pittsburgh politicians were declared 
unconstitutional by the County Common Pleas Court. 

By 1905 however, the political climate began to change. 
Proponents of Pittsburgh’s annexation scheme had the ear of the 
new Governor, Samuel W. Pennypacker. A bill was rushed to the 
State Legislature, and passed on February 7, 1906. The bill allowed 
for two municipalities to merge if agreed to by a majority of the 
ENTIRE population of the two areas. An election was quickly held, 
and Pittsburgh having a far greater population than its neighbor, 
the outcome was inevitable. The vote was two-to-one in favor of 
annexation, despite the wishes of 70% of Allegheny City voters. 

“Allegheny was proud of her existence, and her death struggles 
were severe. 3 A series of appeals went all the way to the U.S. 
Supreme Court; all failed. On December 6, 1907, by order of the 
Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, the consolidation was complete. 
Allegheny City was no more. 

RECENT HISTORY 

Like many urban areas, Old Allegheny fell on hard times after 


Summer 1984 Page 11 


Market House, N. S. Pittsburg, Pa, 



Figure 2 - The Market House (Carnegie Library is at the left) 


World War II. Many upper and middle-class residents moved out to 
the suburbs. Their once-elegant homes fell into disrepair, as poorer 
residents moved in. 

Ambitious urban renewal projects of the 1960’s wiped out many 
links to the area’s past. The old Market House was razed, and 
several streets were moved or eliminated to make way for new 
highways, traffic circles, office buildings, and a shopping mall. 
Three Rivers Stadium rose on the site of the old Exposition Park. 

Many old landmarks were spared, however. The Carnegie 
Library building stands tall, its tower clock still ticking after nearly 
a hundred years. The Mexican War Streets area is thriving. Its 
once-neglected homes have been lovingly repaired, and are now 
some of the most desirable in the city. The Reinhart house has been 
beautifully restored as well. It sports a lovely spiral staircase, and 
is occasionally open for tours. 

Allegheny City may be gone, but its legacy lives on. 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 

The Western Pennsylvania Historical Society (of Pittsburgh, 
PA) provided most of the research material, including the 
photograph of the map. I’d also like to thank CWTS members 
Sterling Rachootin and Lawrence Dziubek for their comments on 
my earlier drafts.

See You In Detroit 

...an editorial 


In the Westin Hotel at 9 a.m. Sunday, July 29, in La Salle B at the 93rd 
anniversary ANA convention in Detroit, The Civil War Token Society will 
assemble for their annual meeting. What a great opportunity to meet with 
the old and new members of the society and exchange tales and tokens! 

I shall never forget my first such meeting at the ANA in 1975 at Los 
Angeles. Dick Brown, the late president of our society, greeted me with 
open arms and introduced me to many whose names I recognized, but had 
not faces in my mind. What a thrill it was to meet the many “greats” of the 
society and the many new members all sharing their love for CWTs. I had 
spent many years in Utah, where I was the one and only CWTS member in 
the entire state. I gave programs on CWTs to every club in Utah, displayed 
my tokens at every convention, but failed to convert a single collector to the 
CWTS. ..one of my greatest failings. 

But what a grand time I had at the ANA. It is always a superb ex- 
perience and I encourage all to attend. A numismatic experience you shall 
never forget. 

I’ll be in Detroit as a part of the official Baltimore ANA 85 promotion 
committee... so you’ll be able to recognize me as the avid CWTS member 
wearing the BALTIMORE hat and waving a BALTIMORE pennant. Sure 
hope you can make it to Detroit on Sunday, July 29... but if you can’t make 
it, then start planning now for BALTIMORE in ’85.

Report on CWTS Auction #52 

Interest in the Society’s quarterly auctions is, if anything, in- 
creasing as evidenced by the 1985 bids submitted by the 102 bidders 
for the 360 lots offered. Two of every three bidders were successful 
(70 out of 102, or 69%). 

For individual honors, it was the patriotics all the way! Top 
honors went to lot #357, a 260/447, with 35 bids. Not too far behind 
with 30 bids was lot #290, a 128/289. Tied for third place with 25 bids 
each was lot #238, a 38/256, and lot #259, a 58/439. 

What’ll it be next auction — all storecards? 


This ’N That 

1. The active Life Membership of the CWTS has been increased to 
63 with the addition of LM66 Bob Johnson. Welcome aboard 
Bob. 

2. Interesting Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum 
Department: The birthdate space on the dues renewal form 
was intended for the use of the Junior Members, however, 142 
Regular Members furnished data, so here’s a few items of 
interest from the data : 

1. CWTS has at least 3 octogenarians, the oldest being 89. 

2. There are at least 15 septogenarians. 

3. There are at least 20 sextogenarians. 

4. The median age of the sample is 50. 

5. The average age of the sample is 51. 

6. There are at least 11 members in their 20’s. 

7. The most popular birth months are July, March and October, 
in that order.

have been elected as Governors for 1985-86 (alphabetical order): 

Paul A. Cunningham 
Richard Rossa 
Russ Sears 
Roy H. VanOrmer 

Not elected were Ron Guth, Gary Pipher, Michael Renner and Dennis 
Wierzba. The voting proved to very close for the fourth spot (not necessarily 
alphabetical) - one vote separated fourth and fifth!

New Patriotic Die Discovered! 


by Cindy Grellman 


In June of 1977 I had been a CWT collector for two years. I was very 
anxious to add as many pieces to my collection as possible, so I purchased a 
bulk lot of 1,000 tokens. I could hardly wait to get home and begin 
cataloging them to see how many new dies and new die combinations I 
could add to my small collection. 

With the help of Bob, my husband, we put all the tokens with similar 
dies (i.e. Indian heads, Dix types, etc.) into piles so we could catalog all of 
one type at the same time. We decided not to ‘’cheat” by cataloging the 
obverse die, then checking in the front of the patriotic catalg to see what our 
reverse choices were. We would do each die, obverse and reverse, in- 
dividually. 

To make a long story short, 998 tokens went smoothly. However, there 
were two that had Fuld number 54 obverse die with a shield reverse die that 
just didn’t match up with any known variety. I will show you by photos 
what I found and point out why this new die cannot be one of the smaller 
dies already known. 

As I mentioned, the die was a shield die, and it was quite similar to dies 
342, 342A, and 343. I will not discuss die 344 here as Jack Detwiler has done 
research in the past to prove that die 344 is actually a worn state of die 343. 
(This information was published in Volume 5, Number 3, pages 4-5 of the 
Journal of the Civil War Token Society .) 

Let’s take a look at the most obvious diagnostic features of the four 
similar dies. In looking at the photos, you can see with the naked eye that 
342 and 342A are different from 343 and the unlisted piece in that the points 



342 


342A 



Summer 1984 Page 27 


343 (or 344) 


Unlisted 


of the shield are closer to the legend “UNION FOR EVER,” especially by 
the first “E” in “EVER.” A second characteristic of 342 and 342A is that the 
horizontal bar below the stars in the shield is even with the first “N” in 
“UNION.” A third feature is that the stars in the shield of dies 342 and 342A 
are larger than those in the other two dies. 

Now that you have three diagnostic features that separate dies 342 and 
342A from 343 and the unlisted piece, let’s compare 343 to the unlisted die. 
The first comparison is with the lower left star in the shield. On die 343, this 
star is clearly right of the first thick vertical bar. On the unlisted die, this 
lower left star is directly above the first vertical bar. Now take a look at the 
upper left point of the shield. On die 343, the point is almost even with the 
“O” in “UNION,” and on the new die it is closer to the “I” in “UNION.” 

There are several other noticeable features which I will mention here. 
However, they cannot be considered diagnostic features for the reasons I 
will give you. The horizontal line in the shield of the new die is very thick, 
and the new die has no stars in the field on either side of the date. These 
cannot be considered concrete evidence because the line in the shield could 
have been reengraved and the field stars could have been ground out of die 
343. Both examples of my unlisted die have a rim cud above the “R” in 
“EVER.” This is not diagnostic because the cud represents a die state 
(broken condition) rather than an engraved feature of the die. Examples of 
this new die probably exist without the cud. 

In closing, let me summarize by giving you just two things to check out 
on your tokens with a shield reverse to see if you have the new reverse die: 


1. Look at the horizontal line under the stars in the shield. If it points 
to the first “N” in “UNION,” go to step 2. 

2. Look at the lower left star in the shield. If it is directly above the 
first thick vertical bar, congratulations! You now own an unlisted die! 

I would like very much to hear from anyone who discovers an example 


Page 28 Copperhead Courier 


of this new die in his or her collection. As I said, I found two in a lot of 
1,000, so it may not be rare. However, I have searched for more specimens 
of this die for over five years with no success. I will publish a follow-up 
report in the Copperhead Courier to report my findings. And remember, in 
the future it may be better not to “cheat” when cataloging what appears to 
be a common token. 

Editor’s Note: 

Cindy reports that Jack Detwiler has reviewed the above situation and 
agrees that the die is a new one. He has assigned the die the number 343 A.

available, having a rarity of R-3. The white metal token is scarce, 
with a rating of R-9. 

It is the purpose of this report to describe Fuld die 439 A, which 
is similar to the previously catalogued 439. The author discovered a 
specimen that represents a muling of the new die with Fuld die 58 on 
a white metal planchet (58-439A WM R-10) . It weighs 4.74 grams ; 
the specific gravity is 7.35; and the diameter measures 24mm. 

Die 439A differs from 439 in several respects (see photos). The 



Fuld Die 439, Previously Catalogued New Reverse Fuld Die 439A in White Metal 


most obvious differences in the designs of the two tokens are the 
absence of the heart symbol in the palm of the outstretched hand in 
die 439A and the addition of the die sinker’s initials, E.S., below the 
cuff on the new die. There are three less noticeable differences in 
the two dies. The number of rays extending into the bow are dif- 
ferent, and the length of the bow is shorter on the new die. Also, the 
distance from the bordering to the three-link chain as well as to the 
tail feathers of the arrows differs. 

The Fuld Patriotic catalogue lists 58-439 in white metal as being 
rarity 9. Attempts to locate a specimen of this token have failed, and 


Page 30 Copperhead Courier 



F uld Die 439A At Higher Magnification 

it is absent from the ANS museum collection. If the differences in 
the reverse dies were unappreciated, it is possible that the die 
catalogued as 58-439 in white metal was actually 58-439A. 

Fuld die 58 is rightfully ascribed to Louis Roloff of New York City, 
and it represents one of the listed Patriotic dies signed by the 
engraver. Fuld’s Patriotic token catalogue also ascribes die 439 to 
Roloff, presumably because it is only known in combination with die 
58. The discovery of 439A throws doubt on this assumption. The new 
die, bearing a striking resemblance to 439, is inscribed with the 
initials of Emil Sigel. The piece described (58-439A WM), 
therefore, represents an example of a double signature token in the 
Patriotic series. Only one other piece is listed with Sigel and Roloff 
signatures on the same token ( 197-378 C R-8) . 

Although Louis Roloff and Emil Sigel are believed to have 
worked independently, their shops were only about two blocks 
apart. Examples of their tokens with interchanged dies are well 
documented, evidence suggesting a close working relationship 
between the two men. 

The new die by Emil Sigel is cruder in its design and crafts- 
manship than the previously described 439. Although he was a 
prolific producer of tokens, Sigel never matched the artistry of the 
other New York engravers. Whether the original design was by 
Roloff on die 439 or by Emil Sigel on die 439A is speculative. This is 


Summer 1984 Page 31 


the only specimen of 439A which has surfaced to date, and it is of 
white metal. It is therefore presumed, for now, that Sigel prepared 
the original die with a white metal trial piece that Roloff may have 
used as a model to create 439 in copper, which was distributed as 58- 
439. 

SUMMARY 

This report describes the previously unreported die 439A, which 
depicts the symbolic emblem of the Independent Order of Odd 
Fellows and is similar to 439. The present specimen is muled with 
die 58 on white metal and represents the first reported specimen of 
this token (58-439A WM R-10). 

The discovery of 439A raises the provocative question of the 
identity of the engraver of 439: Roloff, who is listed in the Fuld 
Patriotic catalogue, or Sigel, whose signature appears on the new 
die.

Letter to the Editor 

Dear Will: 

My thanks to Paul Cunningham and you for another enjoyable issue of 
“ The Copperhead Courier.” V18N1 is bigger and better than ever! 

Dale Cade’s “Assembling a Patriotic Type Set” certainly appeals to all 
of us patriotic collectors. On page 7 I would like to point out that Fuld 81A 
is the same as Fuld 81 where the balls in the headband were punched over 
the “Liberty.” Melvin Fuld first reported 81A in 1971 (See V5N2p7), and 
commented, “The above piece (Fuld 81A) differs from die 81 in that there 
is a dot on the left top side of the numerals 6 and 3 of the date. Also, as can 
be seen, there are extra dots on the stars starting on the right side and 
going almost around.” Paul White submitted the token to Melvin Fuld who 
in turn created the new die 81A. In a telephone conversation with Paul in 
1976 he confirmed that the extra balls on the date and the stars were the 
result of a rusty obverse die. Therefore, Fuld 81A is not a new die since both 
81 and 81A have the balls over Liberty in the headband. I am sorry to say 
that this fact (Balls over Liberty) does not appear in either the 1965 third 
edition or the 1982 fourth edition of Patriotic Civil War Tokens. 

I certainly welcome Dennis Wierzba’s views on pages 28 and 29 
concerning the 1860 mining tokens, but 1 think that he missed the point of 
my two articles. I was not advocating the copper and silver mine tokens 
were store cards as he stated, but rather I was and still am searching for 


Page 32 Copperhead Courier 


the locale where the tokens circulated. To be a store card the name or 
initials of the merchant (the mine in this case) must appear on either the 
obverse or reverse. I have always believed these mining tokens were 
patriotics, but where did they circulate? Just as most patriotics were used 
as emergency money in New York City, the mining tokens may have 
circulated in Michigan, Tennessee, or Vermont. Possibly my choice of 
Michigan was premature; I intend to expand my search to include the 
other two states. Dennis and other CWTS members are encouraged to join 
in the search because their participation will increase the odds that we will 
find the answer to my question. Take it from me the hunt is always very 
exciting! 

Finally, I would like to apologize to Richard V. Punchard for 
classifying him as a non-member in my article, “New Token Catalog is 
Selling Well.” His CWTS membership number is 970, so he has been with 
us for some time! 

Sincerely yours. 

Jack R. Detwiler

Where’s The Tokens! 

editorial. . . 

It is my pleasure to serve as a judge in the token category at the Detroit 
ANA. I was in gear and steaming to charge into the exhibit area and spend 
hours assessing the merits of beautiful tokens. But to my utter dismay, I 
was informed at the judges meeting that there was only one entry in the 
category of tokens! This was the ANA. . .one of the biggest and best shows 
in the world. . .my immediate reaction was, “Where’s the tokens?” 

Upon reaching the display area, I was even more amazed to find only 
one case and within that case there was only ONE TOKEN! It was a unique 
communion token, beautifully displayed and it scored a lot of points, but 
after about ten minutes, I was through! 

If the token exhibits were any indication, I would think that CWTs had 
been classified top secret! We have got to do better than this. . .not a single 
CWT on display at the ANA. If individuals are not willing to share their 
tokens then why not the CWTS? Two goals have surfaced from this ex- 
perience. 

One: Make up a single one case display to share with the world the 
fascination of CWTs. This display could be entered in major shows in the 
name of the CWTS. 

Two: Refine our slide show on CWTs and donate a copy to the ANA to 
add to their program series for clubs. Again in the name of the CWTS. I 
now have my own picture taking capability, so I’m going to dust off my 
tokens and start making slides. 

Two simple projects which would bring the world of CWTs to many 
collectors each year. Blow the dust off your tokens, unwrap that top secret 
label and let’s show the world where the tokens are. . . 


This ’n That

Annual Meeting Held in Detroit 

About 25 CWTS members assembled at the Westin Hotel on the 
morning of July 29 in Detroit for the society’s annual meeting. 

Paul Cunningham was presented the society’s annual Service 
Award. Past service awards have been presented to Dale Cade, 
Melvin Fuld, Robert Haley and Herman Aqua. 

Winners of the 1983 numismatic writing/research awards were 
announced by CWTS President Walter Korzick. First place was 
presented to Dale Cade for his excellent series of articles on 
Assembling A Patriotic Type Set. Second place as awarded to Jack 
Detwiler and third place was presented to William Groom. 

The meeting opened with an announcement by Walter Korzick 
that the Board had decided to raise the annual dues from $5 to $7. 
Postage expenses have forced this action. 

CWTS officers attending the meeting besides Walt Korzick were 
David Schenkman, Past President, Paul Cunningham, Sterling 
Rachootin, Stephen Tanenbaum, Richard Rossa and Roy H. Van 
Ormer all members of the Board of Governors. Vice President Joe 
Levine also attended. 

Stephen Tanenbaum, project coordinator for the new edition of 
the store card book, asked for help from more members. He par- 
ticularly needs volunteers in the Cincinnati area to research 
merchants for tokens and new varieties. Steve also requests all 
CWT collectors to send him any information on unlisted varieties. 
Also if anyone knows of CWTs existing in museums or historical 
societies, listings would be appreciated. Steve reports that the new 
edition is moving ahead quite well. 

The new patriotic book is selling extremely well and mem- 
bership assets are healthy due to the book sales.

Other Civil War Associations 

Most CWT collectors would like to think that only they have an en- 
during interest in our Civil War! The fact is, however, that more than 30 
organizations are dedicated to the study of and/or glorification of the 
conflict. 

The Civil War Press Corps has published The Guide to 
Organizations and Associations with Primary Interest in The War 
Between The States and also publishes a newsletter for enthusiasts 
concerning their special events, battlefield tours, conventions, book 
reviews and classified advertisements. Contact Major Joe Malcom, 264 
Hancock, Ft. Leavenworth, KS 66027. 

Hood’s Texas Brigade Association is open to all direct or collateral 
descendents 18 or over. Write The Confederate Research Center, P.O. Box 
619, Hillsboro, TX 76645. 

The North-South Skirmish Association conducts shooting events, 
using various weapons of the Civil War era. Contact Dale Snair, N-SSA 
Public Information Officer, 3506 Chamberlayne Ave., Richmond, VA

A similar group is the Civil War Skirmish Association. Write CWSA, 
Tom Evans, 7511 Winding Way, Fair Oaks, CA 95628. 

A Civil War group in England is extremely active. The United Kingdom 
Division of the Confederate High Command conducts historical research, 
war games, reenactments and British involvement in the Confederacy. 
They recently sponsored a tour in England of the areas where shipbuilders 
in the Midlands built many of the Confederacy’s warships. Write U.K. 
Division of the Confederate High Command, Windsor, Clacton Rd.,

NLG Honors Patriotic 
Catalog Staff 

During the ANA convention in Detroit the Numismatic Literary Guild 
presented the specialized book award to the editorial staff of the 4th edition 
of Patriotic Civil War Tokens. Dr. George Fuld, co-author of the first 
three editions of the catalog, accepted the award for the Civil War Token 
|| Society members: Dale H. Cade, Jack R. Detwiler, David D. Gladfelter, 

{ Larry J. Grinstead, Jon Harris, B. Stephen McMahon, Helen E. Moore, Dr. 
Robert W. O’Brien, Daniel N. Phillips, Fred L. Reed III, and Richard 
Rossa. 

The book went on sale in December 1983, and 1,334 of 2,000 copies 
have been sold through August 3, 1984. After ordering her copy earlier this 
year, Virginia Culver, Past President of the American Numismatic 
Association, expressed her impressions of the patriotic catalog in a letter to 
Detwiler: “...I am struck by the fact that the editorial staff did a 
MONUMENTAL job!!! There are so many more avenues of interest in the 
series with the in-depth chapters. It is overwhelming! My heartiest 
congratulations to you editors — this is worth a PhD at any university. ”

The Starting Point 

by Jack R. Detwiler 

All Rights Reserved 

Now it is time to consider what category to collect and how to build a 
collection. With Dale Cade presenting his series on assemblying a patriotic 
type set, the Starting Point will begin with the store card category in order 
to widen the options for the beginning collector. 

In 1982 Cade conducted a collecting preference survey of the Civil War 
Token Society members, and the results of the store card portion of the 
survey are summarized in Table 1. The estimated size of each of the 23 
collections has been added to the table, since bigness is a factor in the 
selection process. Footnotes explain how the size of each collection was 
determined or estimated. 

Table 2 is a breakdown of the store cards and provides the number of 
towns, merchants and varieties by states. A variety is a single listing (not 
specimen) from the store card catalog; and the factors that determine a 
variety are the obverse-reverse die combination, the metal of the planchet, 
and the type of edge (plain or reeded). The footnotes identify those towns, 
merchants, and varieties that were moved from either one state or the 
patriotic series to another state. The numbers of Table 2 are constantly 
changing as members of the Civil War Token Society continue to research 
the store card and patriotic categories and adjust the Fuld listings ac- 
cordingly. 

The 23 collections of Table 1 are listed in descending order based on 
collector preference of the Cade survey. At the top of the list is “One from 
each State” with 22 tokens in the collection. A few simple rules should be 
followed when you start building your state set: (1) review each state in the 
store card catalog and select your representative token, (2) prepare your 
want list of 22 store cards, (3) identify your key tokens, (4) purchase your 
keys first and your low-rarity pieces last, and (5) make your collection 
interesting by emphasizing variety in your selections. 

The key store cards to the state set are: Kansas, Alabama, Maryland, 
Iowa, and Tennessee. Kansas and Alabama are one-merchant, one-town 
tokens with Kansas much rarer by a factor of about 5 to 1. Years ago. Bob 
Hailey often said, “Iowa store cards are worth their weight in gold.” Today, 
they still are, and the same could be said for legitimate Maryland tokens. 
Purchasing these five key tokens first (before acquiring the low-rarity 
pieces) has two distinct advantages: the cost of the keys will be much 
smaller and the profit from the sale of your completed state set will be far 
greater. 

Some variety should be sprinkled in during the selection of pieces for 
the state set: dates (1860-64), types of business (artesian well driller, cigar 
box manufacturer, ambrotype gallery), products (barometers, tombstone, 
pianos), services (drayage, shave, treats veneral diseases), die sinkers (47 


Page 6 


Copperhead Courier 


engravers from 12 states), off-metals (16 metals and platings), pictorial 
dies (IL 150AB, IN 460N, MA 115G), planchet size (19mm, 21mm, 
24mm), edge (reeded), spelling errors (Grockery, Tobaco, Metalic Cards), 
and denominations (K, 5C, IOC). The addition of several unusual pieces 
may be appropriate; examples are flip-over double strike, store card over 
store card, overstrike on U.S. coin, clashed-die variety, blank reverse, full 
brockage, thick or thin planchet, and a two- or three-town token. 

NEXT — Selection of individual pieces for the state set. Purchase of 
the five key store cards can start now by selecting the best grade that you 
can afford. Non-contemporary or suspect varieties should be avoided: IA 
570A, MD 60A, MD 60B, and MD 560A. Your MD key should be one listed 
in Table 10-1, Page 203, PCWT Catalog (4th Edition); three listings with 
the full last name are preferred: MD 60D, MD 60L and MD 60N.

Twice-Signed Patriotic CWTS 

by Larkin Wilson 

Eighteen die cutters of Civil War tokens included their name or initials 
on some of their dies. Tokens struck from such dies are commonly referred 
to as “signed” tokens. The fourth edition of Fuld’s Patriotic Civil War 
Tokens catalogs 53 such dies signed by the engraver whose shop 
manufactured the die. The recently discovered 439A die by Emil Sigel can 
be added to the list. This study represents a numerical analysis of those 
tokens in the Patriotic series which have a die sinker’s initial or signature 
on the obverse as well as the reverse of the token. 

There are only 39 of these twice-signed tokens, a very small per- 
centage (2.1%) of the 1,835 tokens listed in the Patriotic series (see Table 
I). Of all the tokens with signatures on the obverse and reverse, 10 resulted 
by having been struck incuse on one side. Thus, both sides originated from 
the same die. Additionally, nine were struck on more than one metal. 
Excluding the 10 incuse listings, only 14 combinations of different dies exist 
which are twice-signed. 

There are 14 known and four unknown die sinkers who signed their 
work. The majority (eight) of those identified had shops in New York City. 
The study of signed tokens has been used to identify the work of a particular 
die sinker or engraver, as well as to specifically identify the shop that 
manufactured certain tokens. Within the 14 combinations of different dies 
representing twice-signed Patriotic tokens, only four have been identified 
that possess the signatures of two different die sinkers on the same token 
(see Table II). Three of these are struck in copper, and one white metal 
specimen was recently reported with the newly discovered 439A die. Die 
sinkers of these tokens were all located in New York City, although the 
exact identity of JGS has not been established, and their shops are known 
to have exchanged dies. Obviously, they had a close working relationship. 

Twice-signed Patriotic tokens are not only rare in regard to prevalence 
in the Patriotic series, but the individual rarity of most of them is quite 
high. Thirty of the 39 twice-signed tokens are either R-9 or R-10. Only two 
exist with a rarity of R-2, two with R-5 ratings, two with R-6 ratings, one 
with R-7 rating, and two with R-8. 

SUMMARY 

Only 39 Patriotic Civil War tokens which possess a signed die on the 
obverse as well as the reverse have been identified (see Table I). When 
incuse tokens are eliminated, only 14 Patriotics possess different com- 
binations of dies. On further analysis, four tokens in the series are identified 
that are inscribed with the signature of a different die sinker on the obverse 
and reverse. The recently reported 58-439A, white metal, R-10, is one of 
those tokens.

Correction 

In the article by Cindy Grellman, New Patriotic Die Discovered!, 
Summer, 1984, issue of The Copperhead Courier , we have detected 
several publication errors. 

Page 27; last sentence of third paragraph should read, “one of the 
similar dies...” rather than, “one of the smaller dies...”. 

Page 28; The sentence beginning in the second line, “A second 
characteristic of 342 and 342A is that the horizontal bar below the stars in 
the shield is even with the first “N” in “UNION”, should be; “A second 
characteristic of 342 and 342A is that the horizontal bar below the stars in 
the shield is even with the upper edge of the “U” in “UNION”. On dies 343 
and the unlisted die, the horizontal bar is even with the first “N” in 
“UNION”. 

As printed we skipped from one sentence to the middle of the next 
which made the info completely wrong. Hope we didn’t confuse the 
readers. . .Sorry Cindy.

letter to the editor... 

Dear Mr. Mumford, 

I am writing to you in regards to new information uncovered on 
a Civil War Storecard. The token is Fuld #165-1, E. Bacher, Union 
Saloon, listed under Cincinnati, Ohio. I believe this token to be from 
Findlay, Ohio. 

According to my records, E. (Ernest) Bacher was a German 
immigrant who came to Hancock County, Ohio in 1858. From 1863- 
1866, he owned the Union Eating Saloon at 232 S. Main St., Findlay, 
Ohio. Bacher sold the business to Robert Timmerman, but the 
saloon name and location remained the same. Records show that 
again Bacher regained ownership of the saloon in 1873-74. After this 
Bacher went on to own the Findlay Bottling Works and two ice 
houses. E. Bacher was a resident of Findlay during and well after 
his business career. 

The above information came from court house records, 
newspapers, and city directories. The early Bradstreet books that I 
have access to, lists E. Bacher under Findlay, Ohio and not Cin- 
cinnati. I believe the word Eating was omitted on the token because 
of space limitations. I’m in the process of researching this further, 
however I strongly feel this token will be attributed to its probable 
home of Findlay, Ohio. Thank you. 

Sincerely yours, 

Thomas N. Schade #1617

Copperhead Courier 


Report on CWTS Auction #53 

Due to the late posting of the Courier, and per standing auction 
policy in such cases, the closing date was extended 10 days to 4 
August. A lower than usual turnout of 64 bidders competed for the 
360 lots offered, and submitted a total of 1080 bids for these lots. 
Gross sales were also down at $1935. 

Most popular lot was lot 357, a patriotic, 285/383, with 20 bids. 
Another patriotic, lot 284, 58/439, took second place honors with 17 
bids. Coming in with 16 bids to round out the patriotic sweep was lot 
255, 11/312, to capture third place honors. That’s two auctions in a 
row that have been swept by the patriotics ! (Do I detect an Olympic 
tie in?) Are the storecards going to mount an offensive to regain 
some of the honors? 

A final word to prospective bidders who were scared off by the 
proximity of the auction closing date and the date on which their 
Courier was received — BID ANYWAY !

Patriotic 136-397 Over C-N Cent 
(Flip-Over Double Strike): 

A New Listing 

By Larkin Wilson 

Flip-over double strikes were produced by a planchet struck once 
normally and then flipped over and struck a second time by the same die. 
The flip-over may have been intentional by the die sinker, or perhaps, 
accidental when the planchet was not ejected properly from the coining 
press between strikes. These tokens are quite rare in the Patriotic series. 
Only five listings appear in the chapter on Special Classifications in the 
new Patriotic Civil War tokens catalogue. 1 

The purpose of this report is to list an additional specimen in this rare 
classification. Fuld 136-397 over C-N cent with flip-over double strike 
appeared as Lot 3612 in the Bowers & Ruddy auction of January, 1983. It 
was catalogued by George Fuld as “unique” (see photos). 



OBVERSE OF FULD 136-397 C-N R-10 
(Over C-N cent; Flip-over double strike) 



REVERSE OF FULD 136-397 C-N R-10 
(Over C-N cent: Flip-over double strike) 


To date, the flip-over double strike has only been listed in copper. 
None are known to be overstruck cents. Additionally, the die combination 
of 136-397 has not been reported in copper-nickel or as a cent overstrike. It 
has only been catalogued in copper with a rarity of R-l and in lead with a 
rarity of R-9. Jack Detwiler has examined the presently reported specimen 
and agrees that the proper designation is 136-397 C-N R-10 (Over C-N 
cent; Flip-over double strike). 

SUMMARY 

The new listing of 136-397 C-N R-10 (Over C-N cent; Flip-over double

strike) is presented with photographs. It appeared in the Bowers & Ruddy 
auction of January, 1983, and has several characteristics which make it 
unique.

Other Civil War Organizations 

Paul A. Cunningham 


James E. Clark wrote in 
“On Recruiting Duty” in the 
January, 1984, issue of Civil 
War Times Illustrated of a 
number of organizations 
worldwide which meet and 
study the various aspects of that 
war. 

For example, the Con- 
federate cruiser Shenandoah 
stopped briefly in January, 1865, 
at the port of Melbourne, 

Australia, on its way up to the 
northern Pacific. From this 
brief encounter, a Civil War 
Round Table grew and meets 
regularly to discuss a war which 
occurred a half world away and 
120 years ago. 

The first Civil War Round Table of the 100+ in existence today 
began in 1940 in the Abraham Lincoln Bookstore in Chicago. Today 
it has 300 members and dues of $35 for those living in the Chicago 
area. A monthly newsletter is published. Write Civil War Round 
Table, 18 E. Chestnut St., Chicago, IL 60611. 

While there is no national Civil War Round Table, the Civil War 
Round Table Associates serves as an “unofficial clearing house” 
for the various regional organizations. The CWRTA has an annual 
convention for its 1,000 members and a monthly newsletter as well. 
Dues are $10. Write Civil War Round Table Associates, Box 7388, 
Little Rock, AR 72217. 

Besides the Australian Civil War Round Table, there are groups 
in Belgium, Canada, England and France. 

The Confederate Historical Institute publishes a monthly

history. For more information write Confederate Historical In- 
stitute, Box 7388, Little Rock, AR 72217.

museum. The association has a quarterly newsletter and sponsors 
special events for its 1,500 members. Write Confederate Memorial 
Association, 1322 Vermont Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20002. 

The last home President Jefferson Davis lived in is preserved

Confederate veterans can join the Order of the Southern Cross, 
which was founded during the war to aid widows and orphans. Write 
Beauvoir Shrine, Box 200, Biloxi, MS 39531. 

The White House of the Confederacy is under the care of the 
Museum of the Confederacy. The museum has 1,500 members and a 
quarterly newsletter. Dues are $15. Write Museum of the Con- 
federacy, 1201 E. Clay St., Richmond, VA 23219. 

The Civil War Sites Fund, begun due to the impetus of the Civil 
War Times Illustrated, raises money to purchase battleground 
property and then turn the ground over to the National Park Ser- 
vice. Contributions are tax deductible. Write Civil War Sites Fund, 
Box 57473, Washington, DC 20037. 

The Civil War Times Illustrated is a slick, profusely illustrated, 
10 issue magazine of 50 pages or more per isue. In one issue were

war. Book reviews, letters to the editor, editorials, classified ads, 
and Civil War related book and artifact advertisements were also 
included. Send $16.95 to Civil War Times Illustrated, Box 1863, Mt.

The boyhood homes of Robert E. Lee (Alexandria), Stonewall 
Jackson (Lexington, VA) and Jackson’s headquarters at Win- 
chester, VA, are maintained by the Lee-Jackson Foundation, a non- 
membership group at 300 Preston Ave., Suite 310, Charlottesville, 
VA 22901. 

The Confederate Research Center will answer any questions 
you might have concerning the Civil War, researched from its 
library of 3,500 Civil War books. In 1983, some 3,000 questions were 
answered free of charge. Write Confederate Research Center, Hill

life of Abraham Lincoln. The Louis A. Warren Library and Museum 
will provide a list of these Lincolnophile groups at no charge. The 
library also displays lincoln medals and tokens. Write the Louis A. 
Warren Library and Museum, Ft. Wayne, Ft. Wayne, IN 46801.

annual directory listing of all these groups. Send $3 to Camp Chase 
Gazette, 3984 Cincinnati-Zanesville Rd., NR, Lancaster, OH 43130. 

There are hundreds of clubs whose primary emphasis is in 
shooting the various tools of death utilized in the Civil War. The 
largest skirmish group is the North-South Skirmish Association

a 250 acre shooting range and campground in Virginia. Dues of $20 a 
year include a subscription to the bimonthly association magazine. 
Write North South Skirmish Association, Box 12122, Richmond, VA

the 650 local chapters average about $10 per year. Membership is 
restricted to descendants of Confederate Veterans but others may 
become associate members. Write United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy, 328 North Blvd., Richmond, VA 23220.

Report on CWTS Auction #54 

The closing date for this auction was extended to 10 November 
because of the late mailing of the Courier, and a number of mem- 
bers took advantage of this extension. The final count showed that 
1,041 bids were submitted for the 360 lots by 81 bidders. Lot number 
6 had to be withdrawn because of an error of omission in the listing. 
It will return in another auction with a correct listing. 

Most popular honors went to lot #248, a 128/290 patriotic, with 22 
bids. Two Indiana lots, #15, 810A-la with 19 bids, and #16, 630A-13a 
with 16 bids, took second and third place honors, respectively.

many of us think of anything else than Civil War Tokens when the 
Civil War is mentioned? 

Count Your Blessings. . . 

an editorial 

What better time to reflect upon our blessings than the start of a new 
year. We in America should always be grateful that we can enjoy freedoms 
never before experienced by humans. Freedom as envisioned by the 
founders of our nation was a new concept in man’s attempts to govern 
himself. We fought a war to gain these freedoms and the Civil War was also 
fought over the freedom of man. Most of us today take these freedoms for 
granted. . .we even find time to complain about many of these freedoms. 
How often, though, do we seriously reflect on our blessings. . .the good 
I things in life. 

It may seem small when compared to the really important things in 
, life, but 1 must count the hobby of numismatics as one of my real blessings. 
What great joys 1 experience to discover a new variety or an unusual 

I numismatic piece to add to my collection. And you should see the joy I 
experience when my mail brings me an article for the Courier. Especially 
when our backlog is low as it is now. 

I want to thank those of you who have contributed to the Courier over 
the past year. Without your articles we would not have a journal. I hope 
more of you will bring joy to my heart during the coming new year. We need 
articles of all sizes. . .large and small. Any article of CWTs or a related 
topic. I especially love questions or stories. Why don’t you make a New 

1 Years resolution to share a story with your CWTS friends. 

Now I hate to be picky, but if you could type your article it would be 
greatly appreciated as I type all copy sent to the publisher and it takes me 


forever if I have to retype your copy. 

I do hope you enjoy The Copperhead Courier and count it as one of 
the good things in your life. Please, if you have any ideas or comments send 
them in as we are always receptive to new ideas. 

Working together I’m sure we’ll all have another good year.
